Italy's Emma Morano, the world's oldest person, dies at 117
Born on November 29, 1899, she was named as the world's oldest known person in May 2016.
Morano, who passed away on Saturday, was confirmed as holding both Guinness World Records titles in May past year following research conducted by the Gerontology Research Group.
She died at her home in Verbania, in northern Italy.
"She reached an incredible finish line", said Verbania Mayor Silvia Marchionini. Supercentenarians are people aged 110 or above. Only roughly 1 in 1000 centenarians ever attain this milestone. When she was 20, her doctor had told her she was anaemic and that such a diet would improve her health.
During her life, Morano had witnessed three Italian kings and lived through a dozen different presidents.
Emma said: "My life wasn't so nice".
Morano was the oldest of eight siblings and married in 1926. "When I first met her she ate three eggs a day, two raw in the morning and then an omelette at noon, and chicken at dinner". She also continued what doctors told her was an unhealthy diet.
Incredibly, Morano was vehemently opposed to taking medications or visiting the hospital.
Sleep also was important. Emma's slumber routine consisted of waking each morning before 6 a.m. and retiring well before 7 p.m. each evening. Her death means there is no one living known to have been born before 1900. One of Morano's sisters lived to be over 100 and another sister nearly reached 100.
The world longevity record, Young noted, remained with French woman Jeanne Calment, who died at 122 in 1997, having outlived both her daughter and grandson. Morano was unable to attend as she had been bed-bound for four years at the time, instead receiving visitors at her home.
